Hi All,

Just purchased a diamond from Blue Nile and wanted to get your opinion on it.

GIA Rated
Cut: Blue Nile Signature Cut Ideal Princess
Carat: 1.01
Color: E
Clarity: VS2
Polish/Sym: Ex/Ex
Depth: 69.5
Table: 69%
Crown %: 11.9%
Girdle: Medium to Slightly Thick
L/W Ratio: 1.01
L x W x D: 5.54 mm x 5.48 mm x 3.81 mm

Got it for $6344.

I''m thinking about having one from GOG sent to have it compared to, but wondering if it''s worth the trouble as I have 30 days to return.

Here''s the GOG one.

Welcome!

I will just fix the link before I proceed.

It depends on you really, if you like the BN diamond but I wonder if it isn't quite what you want? If you can order the GOG diamond to compare that would be very useful as the GOG diamond is of top cut quality and in this way you will be comparing the BN diamond to one of known cut quality. It is difficult for us to judge the BN diamond properly without images unfortunately. Also the GOG diamond is upgradable should that every be a future consideration?

Future Upgrading really isn''t an issue as that wouldn''t be considered. I''m sure the BN is a great diamond, I just want to make sure I''m getting the best for the money and the most brilliance for the money.

Getting your own ASET scope would allow you to compare it for less than shipping a diamond.

Then it that case, Storm''s suggestion could definitely work with getting an ASET to evaluate the BN diamond.

Thanks for the suggestion. I''m actually going to have Accredited Gem Appraisers do the appraisal so I''m going to use the images for the GOG one as a reference when we review it. This save a little money shipping the GOG one back and forth.

Now onto insurance hunt. Anyone know CHUBB insurance provider that gives stand ring coverage without having to get another insurance product? Seems like State farm and Jewelers Mutual offer a replace at their cost policy.
